Doctors utilize tele-conference to celebrate Mother's Day
Gynecological and obstetric doctors from Shanghai and Hubei Province had a distance tele-conference to discuss complicated cases and celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday.
Some patients also shared their experiences during the coronavirus epidemic and expressed their gratitude to medics, who risked their lives to ensure the successful delivery of their children.
A new mother from Wuhan, the former epicenter of coronavirus, said she started to have a fever in late January after her husband, mother-in-law and father-in-law all had fevers. She was 37 weeks pregnant.
The infection was confirmed the next day and she was hospitalized with the help of volunteers.
“Medical staff were facing a strong risk to receive and help me to deliver my baby," said the woman. "Fortunately, my daughter tested negative to coronavirus. While I was hospitalized for separate treatment, medics took good care of me despite the risk. I was so moved.”
Doctors from the Gynecology and Obstetrics Hospital of Fudan University in Shanghai exchanged information with doctors from Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University on coronavirus prevention and control.
Since the epidemic began in Wuhan, Zhongnan Hospital has helped 88 women with confirmed or suspected coronavirus infection to deliver their babies. All babies have tested negative to the virus.
